This hope we have as an anchor of the soul a hope both sure and steadfast. (Hebrews 6:19)
A Christ centered substance abuse program for men & women Brooklyn, NY.
From the Administrator
Rev. Enrique Lopez
In its’ over forty years of ministering, Anchor House has been serving those whom are deemed the least - those that are disenfranchised, homeless, those that are in prison and chemically dependent. Certainly, we count it an opportunity and honor to serve them. Over the years, we have experienced and have been witness to what the love and power of God can do in the lives of those that are seemingly hopeless. Men and women bound and enslaved by the scourge of drug abuse have been transformed into productive, successful citizens. We have many success stories to illustrate what our shepherd, Jesus the Anointed One has wrought throughout these 40 years of ministry.
Take Hiram, for example, who was given the choice to stay in prison or enter Anchor House. He chose Anchor House and came to us most reluctantly. According to Hiram, he was “turned off” by Christianity, yet one night he decided to take a look into this Bible that was so important in the lives of the other residents of Anchor House. That night, as Hiram read the scriptures God revealed himself, and Hiram finally surrendered to the Lordship of Jesus Christ. Today, the accomplishments of this one rebellious young man are outstanding. The Reverend, Dr. Hiram Irizzary is currently the Administrative Chaplain of a Federal Prison in Miami, Florida. One of his parishioners is Manuel Noriega, the former dictator of Panama. There are more success stories, but it would take many, many pages and books to contain them all. Today, our graduates range from entrepreneurs to blue collar workers, culinary people, pastors, ministers and members and contributors of churches; they are people who impact our society in positive and productive ways.
Anchor House’s program offers a structure that causes its residents to acquire or discover meaning and purpose in their individual lives.
TO GOD BE THE GLORY FOR GREAT THINGS HE HAS DONE!
